My beloved man has a Wood Workshop. A place I love to stay, too.
I decided to use the pieces he cuts off, and some other “full” pieces of lumber I find very esthetic.
Fortunately I also love to collect shards of all kinds, mostly tiles some people simply put on the street. Maybe they think others are not rich enough to buy tiles for their own bathrooms…... maybe simply they are poor minded enough to avoid the fatigue to go to the collectors.
Good for me!

I haven’t thought about doing something like this. It never stops amazing me how many different ways people come up with to decorate wood. You did a nice job on this. Congratulations.

Well, let me describe it a bit more thoroughly for those who are interested in the actual woodworking part of it.
It’s a piece of black locust. The notch for the mosaic is routed to 7.5 mm depth. The twist in the story came when she started to use colored grout… It was messing up the beautiful golden color of locust. Then put some grout all over it, I said. It worked. It worked so well, that the color of the wood is identical to the steamed black locust. But interestingly the sap wood hasn’t adsorb anything. It has no finish on it. We wanted it to look more natural.
My favorite about it is the eye in the bottom.
It’s gorgeous, honey. Wonderful design as well.
